Maintainers, new or upgraded line replaceable units (LRUs) for the Bradley M2A3 and M3A3 Bradley Fire Support Team (BFIST) require an updated Vehicle Version Identification (VVID) to make sure the new hardware will work as intended. Once installed, the software must remain on both systems in order to maintain their full capability.
VVID software versions 00.08.05.01 (for the Bradley) and 01.08.05.01 (for the BFIST) are being fielded now. TACOM is distributing the software to logistics assistance representatives (LARs) for installation, which must be accomplished within 90 days of TACOM Maintenance Action Message (MAM) 22-037’s release date, which was 27 Apr 22.
Units should coordinate with the appropriate modification work order (MWO) coordinator listed in Para 9 of TACOM MAM 22-037 to get the process started.
Be advised that the new software must be installed on replaced LRUs if LRUs are turned in for repair or replaced.
